Do you use Bible Software? If so, which one is your favorite?
I have two favorites. Bibleworks 7.0, and SwordSearcher 5.21
SwordSearcher now includes the words of Christ in red.
Since I have a iMac computer, the choice is between Accordance, Mac-Sword or web based.
I have chosen to use Accordance and I like it.
Sometimes I use BJU Linked Word Project to quickly chech the greek or hebrew word in a verse.
I checked e-sword due to the resources but I usually use Bible Companion Software for quick looks at stuff. I have used it for years, it is the old Seedmaster software but BCS is defunct so running on several year old program.
Anything serious I crank up the e-sword.
Olivetree/laridian is the usual on pocket pc though E-sword is pretty awesome on it as well.
Bibletime. It is free, and runs under Linux. I also use several web-based systems like biblegateway, etc.
I like and use Online Bible.
e-sword, and NET Bible
I use Bible Navigator Deluxe - bought from Lifeway a couple of years ago. It updates automatically and I have purchased a few extra translations of the Bible it didn't have (NIV & ESV). I like it (but it is the only one I have used).
There is also a free program that has a lot of free resources as well.
Thanks for this poll, I've been thinking of getting Bible software not I can see what the pro's use. I've been using a website and the old book itself.
You might snoop the computer section also I think there have been some threads there in the past.
For free Online Bible and E-sword are hard to beat
E-sword has become the only one I use now. Bought the NKJV module and am "happy as Larry."
Don't ask - its just something we say here and I have no idea who Larry is .
Is esword software or a website?
Free Software - http://www.e-sword.net/
The only thing I have paid for is the NKJV translation. I think is was $15 for that.
I use Online Bible, which I always think is a bit of a misnomer, because I don't have to go online to use it - it is a program I installed on my PC. I sometimes refer to E-Sword and The Sword Project, as well.
LeBuick, I believe the two high end software packages used by pros are Bibloi and BibleWorks. The advantage of these programs is that they are extremely good in working with the original languages. If you know Greek and/or Hebrew well, then one of these two is a must. The reason is that you can do extended grammatical searches with them: say to find out where pisteuw (I believe) and eis (into) are used together.
I use both these and recommend BibleWorks most since it has an almost instant search function for Greek and Hebrew words. Bibloi has the added advantage of being able to search the Church Fathers, Latin Bible, LXX, etc. However, when you get one of these as is, you get few of the extras a low end package has, such as all the commentaries and dictionaries.
If you don't do the original languages, then I recommend you go with e-Sword, which has the most goodies of any low end package.
Speaking of e-Sword, I don't use it much for one reason. I can't figure out how to make the font bigger for my poor eyes. Can anyone help me here?
Larry Fine of the 3 stooges? He was always happy!
Had to reinstall my e-sword to find this one.
